No, you're fine. AT&T reports what we used to refer to as 3G (which is HSPA/HSPA+) as "4G" now (its a marketing ploy of some sort), and LTE (which is actual 4G) as "4G LTE". Edge is still "E"

The reason the iPhone reports 3G is that it's probably from back before at&t started changing their marketing (lying in my book, but that's just me) about what signal is what generation.
The FAQ page has the answer to every question you could ever have about the forums, ever!
